This sounds suspiciously like a hardware fault. If you are in an area with a Genius Bar or an authorized Apple repair centre, I would take the unit in for testing/diagnosis. As these are always-on devices, they should be able to sustain brownouts and outages without issue.

As there is no power switch or external fuse on the airport line of hardware, the absence of any lights when you plug it in means that the hardware is failed. If you have AppleCare on the computer it might cover that airport so definitely check that if you have a covered computer. If not, the repair cost for an airport is generally not much less than a ...

If the USB hub is bus powered (it doesn't have to plug in to a wall socket) then the problem is that your Hard Drives are drawing too much current. USB Standards state that each USB port needs to be able to output 500mA. When you divide that by four (assuming your USB hub is 4-port), you get 125mA, which isn't nearly enough to power two hard drives. I ...

Obviously you joined neighbors network once upon a time. Since you have the "Remember networks this computer has joined" Enabled, it will remember it. Find it and delete it in networks - advanced, or just delete both and next time reconnect in the coffee shop, but do not connect to Free WiFi if showing up when at home. The fact that they have the same ...

Open Directory insists that the host name it lives on resolves to that host for both "forward" (e.g. normal) DNS lookups and "reverse" (e.g. PTR record) lookups. If this is not the case, it will insist that the "problem" be fixed or that the host name be changed to one that meets both these criteria. In many cases, the simplest way to make that happen is to ...

Try plugging an old externally powered USB 2.0 hub into the airport extreme and then plugging the external drive into the hub. This is the only way I could get my new (Sept. 2014) USB 3.0 hard drive to work with my 5th generation airport extreme. The drive came with its own externally powered USB connector but it would not work with the airport extreme for ...

Since you only have 1 IP address from the school, you need to make sure that your airport is setup in NAT mode, and not in bridged mode. You'll need to make sure it's giving out DHCP addresses as well, and you may want to make sure it's not in a range used elsewhere on campus so that you don't run afoul of weird routing issues. I suggest the 172.16 range ...

From your analysis you have a typical interference problem within channel 6 and 802.11b use. This interference problem might have appeared after a move of only a few centimeters. The day before you were protected from your neighbour interference with a glass, this day when moving out of the shadow of this glass you are under the full light from the AP (or ...
